Market News

Good Morning Market family!

Marcy Jams! is away this week and returns next week with new stock!

Dogwood Valley Greenhouse has added several aloe potted plants— This is a larger plant, and includes several ‘pups’ in the pot. Aloe vera is a succulent plant with a clear gel inside the leaves that is used often used as an alternative medical treatment for burns and skin care. Grow inside in bright light, or outside in shade in warm weather, watering every 2-3 weeks. Aloe vera does not like wet feet. To use, remove leaves at the base with a sharp knife, then put in a sandwich bag, wrap in foil, and store in the fridge to reuse for 4 or 5 days.

Wild Flours Bakery is with us this week with breads! Stock up!

Frontier Family Farm and Ferris Family Farm both continue to provide us with quality, no-chemical lettuces and greens needed for the spring tonics our winter blood needs!

Botanical Harmony Farm is updating their soy candle inventory and there will now be essential oils only candles and fragrance oil candles. They will be listed separately and scents will be added as we stock up on Spring scents!
Essential oil candles will include: lavender, eucalyptus mint, orange spice, unscented and more to come.

The fragrance oil options are changing into spring so will be updated this morning and continue on for the following weeks!

So to celebrate, BHF is offering a sale on candles. One for $7 (regular price $8.50) or 2 for $13! These candles have a good long, clean burn and smell incredible! GREAT for gifting!! They also have the smaller sizes listed again!

Botanical Harmony Farm will have Benjamin’s broccoli and zesty sprouts this week. Thank you for your support of our growing sprout business as we work out timing/growing and packaging kinks!

Don’t forget that we can deliver to your door! Select delivery and add to your cart just as you would any product check that your address is correct in the system, set a cooler out and we will deliver during the normal pickup hours on Wednesday.

See you Wednesday!

Market ChitChat

A hearty Thank You to Patty D. who surprised and delighted us for St. Patrick’s day yesterday! The sweet hand made decorations inspired us . . . you’ll just have to see for yourself!

If you ordered last week we hope you found the refrigerator magnets in your bag. Our goal is to get one in EVERYONE’s kitchen! We want your refrigerator match the one at our Dothan pickup location. If you don’t have one we’ll have them at Open House next Thursday.

Daleville Customers – we appreciate you so much! No doubt Wendy is enjoying getting to know you. If and when you get a chance to come to Dothan be sure to say Hello to the rest of us. :)

Sandspur Farms still has plenty of beautiful fresh collards!

In Season

The Market is blessed with an abundance of beautiful greens and fresh strawberries these days. Salads like these are a good way to treat yourself healthy. As spring turns into summer and other berries become available more flavor combinations are available. Google will be happy to assist (“berry salad”) if you need additional inspiration.

This Week’s Grower Notes

We have the best Growers in the Wiregrass! Please learn more about them on our Grower Page.

HORTON’S FARM: Praise the Lord! Happy to report that the strawberries survived last week’s freezing temperatures thanks to some hard work and row covers. The sad flip side is that we weren’t able to cover all the tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, squash etc. and they did not. Fortunately they’re easier to replace.

On a different note, we will be taking a week or so off starting around 3/25/17 to greet the newest grandbaby. Viki Richter will manage the Market that week. One upside of this is that the eggs collected during that time will be PERFECT for EASTER boiling!

KATHY’S KLUCKERS: We’ll be back next week!

MARY’S PEEPS: We are so very greatful to everyone who recycles for me and others for this market. Its very heartwarming how special ya’ll are. Thank you! it does mean a lot that you do this. Please leave comments, it’s the only way we know if we are doing a good job. Also try and look for the new product that I try very hard to integrate into the different categories every week. Always trying to add something good, new, and hopefully interesting to your day. Again many thanks for your support to Mary’s Peeps, and Mary Bees.

SANDY VALLEY: Off next week to give the vegetables a chance to catch up.

Bulletin Board

The Bulletin Board is for your garden/kitchen/farm listings. Please email your notices to marketatdothan@gmail.com with contact info. Posts will be run for 2 weeks.

Is there a vendor or local farmer whom I can get or purchase untainted animal droppings from, preferably llama, alpaca, rabbit, sheep, and/or goat? (334)791-6819

Recycling Need: Avalon Farms is in need of empty large push button type laundry or fabric softener containers. These may be dropped off any time at The Market Shed at Dothan Nurseries. Please leave them under the table behind the picket fence.

Items Available: A wonderful Market Customer has donated a large quantity of food grade plastic 1.75 liter bottles for recycling. The uses are endless! If this is something you could use please stop by on Friday morning for pickup or contact us to make arrangements to get them. If you’re in Daleville, just include a note with your order telling us how many you would like. (Mary’s Peeps showed us how to turn these bottles into very effective wasp and yellow jacket traps. Be sure to ask!)

PICKUP TIME is Wednesday from 5-6:30pm!

Thank you for choosing Northeast Georgia Locally Grown as a way to support your local producers. This online farmers market allows you to buy directly from multiple farms committed to chemical-free and local produce all year long! CHEMICAL-FREE means produce and pastures grown without synthetic fertilizers, herbicides, fungicides, or insecticides. LOCAL means within 80 miles from the market pickup locations (usually much much closer). Do you know someone who grows chemical-free food in the area? Get them in touch with us. Know someone who wants fresh food? Spread the word. Put the two together, and that’s growing organically!
